2024 Exhibition – Travelling Tales

Our exhibition in 2024 celebrates visitors to the library over the ages, and books from our collections whose authors have wandered the wide world, both overseas and at home.

Although you can’t borrow books at Innerpeffray any more, all books in the collection and exhibitions are available to read, so please do ask if you have an interest in a particular subject. Only our very fragile books are exceptions to this and our guides are always happy to assist.
